ADOPT A GIRAFFE

Giraffes are under threat, both in captivity and in the wild. Wild giraffes have been extensively hunted for their meat, but today their main threat is loss of habitat.

Wild giraffes live complex lives and roam large expanses, so being confined to small enclosures can lead to extreme frustration and boredom.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR GIRAFFE ADOPTION

Help protect giraffes in the wild with an animal adoption and you’ll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing all of these items…

All UK orders are sent via Royal Mail 2nd class delivery. Please allow 28 days for delivery on overseas orders. Please note – we cannot hold orders for delivery on a specific date.

WHY SHOULD I ADOPT A GIRAFFE?

Adopting a giraffe helps support us in preventing their mistreatment and endangerment. Habitat loss has led to their population decreasing by 40% in the last three decades. With less than 100,000 giraffes remaining in the wild, it’s important that we help save their habitat for generations to come.

We work to stop giraffes from losing their habitat as a result of climate change by preventing crop loss and mitigating local climate change. Your adoption helps us to monitor the giraffes and ensure their habitats are sustainably cared for. These are just a few benefits your adoption can provide.
